    A bit more on the banality of evil. The insanely cruel US sentencing examples cited in Twitter links in the thread on Manafort’s sentencing yesterday make me wonder about the mentality of judges and prosecutors who work in that system. I could never live with myself in their shoes. Are they twisted, evil, trapped or just plain vanilla stupid? It is near incomprehensible to me.

      What gets me is their death sentence process. They executed one dude the other day, who going by the dates, would have been on death row for nearly thirty years.

      If they must have a death sentence it should be fast like Chinese justice . Making a man wait thirty years is cruel in my opinion.

      The dude did have a sense of humour though. His final words were: ”That’ll be $5.”

      Any different to Obama selling seats for dinner for $50k a head?

        Yes very little chance of human trafficking being involved and no sexual activity as far as I now.

      The Titanic is full steam ahead on it’s way.

    • It would be a mistake to confuse Mueller’s silence on the conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and Russia with a lack of evidence of conspiracy.

      So Mueller is sitting on all the juicy stuff that will see Trump out of the Presidency and no one has even a hint at what it is? This from the leakiest operation in US history?

      Adam Shiff had 10 hours of private conversation wtih Cohen and still doesn’t have any more, he even colluded with the Russians to get the kompromat on Trump, yet still nothing.

      Where’s the beef?
